MCC - Vertical Laminar Airflow

Vertical Laminar Airflow

Vertical Laminar Airflow

Hood or Enclosure with Laminar Airflow.

The laminar airflow was invented to avoid microbial contamination during biological experiments; or protection against particulate pollution.

Air flows through a high-efficiency filter "High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter (HEPA), then is released in a straight stream, perpendicular to its supply source and work area in the direction of the user to protect the experiment, or parallel to the position of the operator to protect them.

The laminar flow hoods are usually equipped with a UV - C germicidal effect lamp to sterilize the work area and its content when not in use.

They are used in:

  • Operating rooms to protect the patient against infections usually by vertical stream.
  • Cleanrooms for the quality and safety of food, pharmaceutical, or even electronic products depending on the level of efficiency of air filtration and laminar flow systems.
